Remote Data Backup

A Remote Data Backup is the process used by remote or branch offices (ROBOs) to store their data securely at an off-site data center. Businesses with ROBOs require backup and recovery solutions that can support their organization’s data protection policies and business service levels.

Remote data backup requires only a couple of mouse clicks to back up a branch office’s data to a remote, secure storage space, providing immediate peace of mind that the office’s information is safe and secure..

Remote data backup can be done in-house with software that ties into the data center, or aided by WAN optimization appliances that let businesses make better use of bandwidth from ROBOs to centralized data centers.

Cloud backup as a managed service is another solution for remote data backup. Using a cloud backup service allows businesses to store data off-site, which aids in disaster preparedness, and it can also save companies money by eliminating the need to purchase technology or to use internal staff resources to manage backups and restorations.
